Davol, Inc. introduces a new absorbably fixation system. The SORBAFIX™ Absorbable Fixation System is indicated for prosthetic mesh fixation and the approximation of soft tissue in laparoscopic and open surgeries. The system is pre-loaded earlier with 15 or 30 absorbable fasteners that are deployed via a 5-mm, low profile delivery system. Additional system features include:
- Repair strength 7 times great than maximum intra-abdominal pressure.
- A unique hollow core that allows for tissue ingrowth through the interior of the fastener.
- Consistent diameter of the threads designed to maximize tissue engagement.
- Absorption of the poly (D,L)-lactide (PLA) fasteners is nearly complete at approximately 12 months post-implantation, leaving less foreign material behind.
